This program is designed for kids ages 4 - 12. Leagues will be divided by age and skill level. Transfers between leagues may be made on a case by case basis, based on size and ability.
USA Hockey Registration is required.
This league offers a "fun-based, non-competitive approach" to learning the basics of hockey. The emphasis will be on an introduction to, and the development of, playing hockey in a team environment.
This is a 12 session hockey program to include 4 practices and 8 games.
All games will be non-checking, full equipment is required and available in our Pro Shop.
Full hockey gear is needed to participate in this program. Good news though! We have some available to rent / use or purchase while you participate in our programs. We know that the thought of having to purchase gear just to try a new sport can be discouraging so we keep a stock of gear to help to suit you up and get the kids moving.
Youth new to the program, ages 4-8, will receive a set of brand new equipment (including skates), as part of the Washington Capitals Learn to Play Initiative. The equipment is yours to keep. (Rental equipment is available for youth ages 9-12.)
All participants must have current USA Hockey registration before participating.
